+pgrig Posted October 16, 2008 Share Posted October 16, 2008 I'm going hunting on Saturday for MY4986, and would be happy to have company, if anyone's interested. This 1849 mark, a lowly drill hole with three chiseled cross RMs, is located on the highest point of Hog Island, part of the Crane Beach Reservation in Ipswich. I called up today to inquire about access and learned it was "Hog Island Day" (an annual event) on Saturday and they will be running shuttle boats over to the island and back. Normally it's only accessible by kayak, and I don't keep one of those among my equipment. I think it involves about a 2.5 mi. RT hike once we arrive on the island's boat dock. I got special permission from the Supt. of the Reservation. If you're interested, email me and we can set something up. There's a $15 fee for non-members of the Trustees of Reservations. It sounds like an interesting and beautiful trip, and I think a "find" is likely, so I thought I'd ask around... Someone seems to visit this mark about every 55 years! -Paul Quote Link to comment
